Adding support to existing retaining wall

2991 Views 8 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Lamantino

We have a 4' tall retaining wall in our yard that holds back the neighbor's soil which is at higher level than our yard.
Recently, we have lowered the grade on our yard to make it one uniform level across most of the yard, but we left some dirt against the retaining wall to support it.
We are planning to build a short (maybe 2 feet) retaining wall to keep that dirt in place, but wanted to keep about 5 feet gap against the existing wall to place a BBQ.

The question we have is how to add support to the existing retaining wall in the gap area where the BBQ will be placed?

Any help would be appreciated!

I don't suppose you know how the wall foundation is constructed? Typically you need a certain amount of earth in front of the wall.
